This interactive novelty book starring Dora and Diego makes toothbrushing a treat!

Dora and Diego are teaching kids all about keeping their teeth healthy in this adorable novelty book. With pop-ups, pull-tabs, and a cardboard toothbrush that moves back and forth, young readers will want to brush their teeth with Dora and Diego every day!

Sure to be a big hit with kids just learning this important daily ritual,
Let’s Brush! ties into Nickelodeon’s “Big Beginnings” initiative and will have an eye-catching “Big Beginnings” burst on the front cover.

My Thoughts:

In addition to working with Savannah on potty training, we have been teaching her how to brush her teeth with toothpaste, as well as the importance of good dental hygiene.  At first, she didn't understand the concept of brushing and flossing, and would merely chew on the toothbrush.  But, through the help of this interactive story, she began brushing properly.  This book, like the Little Color Fairies I just reviewed has push and pull tabs, as well as pop-up pages through the book.  The story is easy to read, and will be enjoyed by Dora and Diego fans.  Savannah is a huge fan of both, and couldn't stop pointing to each of them and calling out their names.  

I love when I stumble across a book that is not only entertaining to read, but is also a great teaching tool.  I will definitely be sharing this book with Arabella when she gets a little older.

Are you trying to teach your little one proper brushing techniques and the importance of dental hygiene?  If so, this is a great book to pick and share with them.

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
